Newcastle to ready offer for free agent Iheanacho

Share

Kelechi Iheanacho could come back to hunt Leicester City in the Premier League as Newcastle United is considering a move for the striker following his exit from the newly promoted club.

The Nigerian international has been released officially by the Foxes as his contract expires on June 30, leaving him without a club and free to sign elsewhere following his release.

Iheanacho bagged six goals and three assists last season but was often overlooked by former boss Enzo Maresca, who only handed the 27-year-old 10 starts in the second tier.

The former Man City forward has netted 42 goals and 25 assists in 196 Premier League appearances. His lack of game time at Leicester and recent release raises questions, but he’s five years younger than Callum Wilson and could be a decent squad player if brought in to compete with Alexander Isak and another incoming striker.

It’s also worth noting that he’s represented by ROGON; the same agency that looks after Joelinton. That may be irrelevant if talk of our interest is false, but could come in handy if we are considering a free transfer.
